After spending a painstakingly long time of constant pinging the final result i 
so dearly sought was all garbled. 

Shy of eight million pings with no additional switches and four months spent the
conclusion of it all is that our ping implementation(i assume) is not up to snuff and suffer from overflows. 
Sending eight million pings i guess.
